About David

EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT:
I am currently a PhD student in Education and Learning Sciences at UC Irvine. My undergraduate degrees are from UC Irvine as well. I double majored in Anthropology and Public Health with a minor in Education.

TEACHING BACKGROUND
I've served in various teaching roles from PreK to the graduate level since 2008. I've tutored one on one and facilitated classroom learning in K-12 settings in math, English, and science. I've been a teaching assistant at various elementary and high schools developing curriculum and teaching in social sciences and science. My experience in higher education has been a teaching assistant leading discussion sections for educational psychology and research methods at college and Master level classes.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
I employ active learning activities that are student centered as I see learning occurs through the intellectual, social, and emotional connections with students. Having a learning objective is critical and I use my background in learning theory to design activities to scaffold and empower my students to take ownership of their learning. My role as a teacher is a facilitator to provide the tools and resources students need to be successful and learn content as well as strategies to help them succeed.

I've taken statistics at the AP level (grade: 4/5) and doctoral level (grade: A). I not only have taken the courses but also use the methods often in my research. I'm also familiar with the routines and tools used in math learning for K-6 math such as pre algebra, algebra, and geometry.

My undergraduate degree is in Anthropology (Medical anthropology) and I base my current work grounded in the discipline. I have also taken psychology at the AP level (grade 5/5) and been a teaching assistant and discussion leader at the undergraduate college and masters level courses. I am also familiar with the standards and routines in K-6 science.

I design activities to provide you tools and resources to be a more confident and empowered student!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anthropology

I have a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Anthropology with certificates in Gender Studies, Medical Anthropology, and Global Studies. I have conducted my own independent research using ethnographic methods under the advisement of faculty members. I have taken 72 quarter units in anthropology at the undergraduate level.

STATA

I use STATA 14 for my research. I primarily use it for SEM, OLS regressions, and publication style tables.
